Mail Call - Nov. 17

November 17, 2011

“Many thanks to the auxiliary policeman, Burdette, and the Community Rescue squad, and the many private citizens who helped my wife when she had a medical emergency yesterday in Hagerstown. And also to Shelly at the Rhubarb House, thanks, we really appreciate the help.”

— Brightwood Acres East



“I’ve been told by relatives that the government is going to stop paper checks by the first of January, for Social Security, and I’d like to know if it’s the truth or not, because if it is, I’ve heard that direct deposit is mandatory, into the bank of your choice, and if anyone has any information about this, I’d appreciate it.”

— Hagerstown



“I’ve noticed in the back of the paper that it tells you all the time when the landfill is closed on holidays. What a waste of money, putting it in the back of the paper and paying for that ad. That’s taxpayers’ money. I mean, why don’t they list it in other parts of the paper, like other closings, like where the banks and schools and everything’s closed. It’s a waste of taxpayers’ money telling you that the landfill is closed.”

— Hagerstown



“I was wondering if anyone at the Boonsboro volunteer company could let us know whether they are doing the Christmas ornaments. There are a series of ornaments they have been doing as a fundraiser. This year it wasn’t available at Boonesborough Days, and we’ve called the fire station several times and no one seems to know what’s going on. So if someone could call in from there and let me know, I would appreciate it.”

— Hagerstown



“I want to say thanks to Mr. Waters for putting that editorial in the paper about caring for the senior citizens and looking after them. There’s a lot of so-called Christians and relatives that are supposed to be helping, and they’re sitting back letting everybody else, but when the money comes after they die, they’re there to grab that money. Good report, Mr. Waters.”

— Washington County



“Joe Paterno is a very good man. What happened at Penn State is a cancer in most of our athletic programs. Corruption occurs, from childhood athletic leagues to professional sports. If you don’t believe me, read your local sports page.”

— Halfway
